Respected Industry Veterans Will Discuss the Value of HR to Empower Effective Decision-Making and Leadership

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - March 25, 2011) - The 2011 HRO Today Forum, an innovative event that brings four human resource conferences into one, will feature presentations from respected industry experts, visionaries and authors.

HR and business professionals will gather at the Venetian Hotel, Resort and Casino in Las Vegas from May 24-26, 2011 to hear keynote talks from Peter Cappelli, Director of the Center for Human Resources, The Wharton School and John Murabito, Executive VP, Human Resources & Services, CIGNA Corporation.

In addition to his work at The Wharton School, Professor Cappelli currently serves on commissions for The Business Roundtable, the World Economic Forum and the U.S. Department of Labor. His recent research examines changes in employment relations in the U.S. and their implications. He also received the 2009 PRO award from the International Association of Corporate and Professional Recruiters for contributions to human resources.

Driving growth for CIGNA's businesses through an effective human resources and people strategy, John Murabito brings more than 25 years of extensive related experience to the HRO Today Forum. Murabito is responsible for human resources strategy and planning and also serves on the Board of Directors of Cornell University's Center for Advanced Human Resources Studies and the Human Resources Policy Association.

Revered as a leading independent voice in the HR technology/HRO industry, Bloom has built the only vendor-neutral HRM domain model and application architecture "starter kits," which have been licensed and consulted across the industry and are considered to be not only the state-of-the-art but also a primary contributor to many of today's best practices in both areas.
